Made this our lunch stop one day and were not disappointed. Great selection of reasonable priced items. Service was quite good. Glad we made the choice to stop there as we were exploring the island.

During our week we ate here several times mostly for breakfast and a dinner. Food was ok, good portions and has a decent pool/beach view. Our service was good, but we observed other servers that were slower than island time and had frustrated customers. It’s a good option for staying at the resort.

Great Caesar salad. Fast and reasonably priced. Quiet late at night and no line up when Dukes is lined up for half an hour.

The hotel main restaurant had very good food and a lovely buffet at breakfast. A little pricey, but it's a hotel restaurant. The Hostess, Gina, is a delight.

Breakfast buffet is $30/person and is totally worth it. Nearby restaurants are cheaper but the portions and quality leave much to be desired. This buffet was top quality and left you wanting nothing. Eggs benedict alone are worth it, holy cow!

We ate at Kukui's because we were too tired to go anywhere else. For the price, the food is very average. The real issue here was the service. The server let us cool our heels for twenty minutes while he "ran food" and did other things because he was "slammed". I get it - sometimes you get too busy for... More

View is priceless, food is ok. The Breakfast Buffet was 30.00 each, but the food selection and the fact that you are sitting on a beautiful beach and pool area. If you are staying at Marriott you can't beat the buffet. Anythn you can think of and more. I love the Portuguese Sausage and the omelet station. The service was... More

Although we weren't staying at the Marriott Hotel, my wife and I and our friends visited 4 times in the week we were in Lihue. The breakfast menu offers a $20 all inclusive price (eggs, meat, hash browns, toast, coffee and juice). The dinner menu is interesting and the portions are large. Try the forbidden rice (cold) salad - or... More
